The end of an era...

So I took a brief hiatus from posting because I've basically been obsessed with this, but I didn't want to jinx it and it's been several days in the works --> I finally sold my car today.  It had been on the market for about 3 months, which isn't terrible for a used car that's on the expensive side, but I was really starting to stress.  Our bank account has been leaking baby much more quickly than I anticipated, so it's a huge relief to (1) not have an extra car hanging around the house, and (2) have the money in our pocket.

Although I'm relieved, I'm also terribly sad.  This car was my baby.  I honestly never thought I'd sell her; I'd drive her until she fell apart and then I'd buy another one exactly like her.  I got her pretty much exactly 8 years ago and we've been through a lot together.  I get inappropriately sentimental about inanimate objects, so parting was really rough.  Lot of memories in that car.  *tear*  (Of course I cry at everything nowadays so who knows how much of this is normal versus raging hormones.)

I also had my final doctor's appointment this morning.  No change from last week, or the week before that, or the week.... We set up an induction for next Tuesday just so I have a slot on the calendar, even though I'm still not totally sold on inducing.  So, I'm really really hoping this baby decides to come before then.  I guess I need to get started on all the things that those old wives' tales say will induce labor!


  1. No more sexy little red cars for you Mama! At least for awhile.

  2. Congrats on selling the car! Even though its totally sad.

    TUESDAY!!! So exciting to have a date planned!! Keep me posted!!
